Hop: Aquila


Aquila was bred in Washington, Oregon and Idaho in 3-acre trials in 1987, eventually released commercially in 1994 after trials. Anheuser Busch showed interest and Washington in increased to 100 acres to allow for evaluation. Aquila was open-polinated from Brewer's Gold.

Aquila hasn't worked out as a commercial hop due to high cohumulone content with Anneuser Busch losing interest. Discontinued in 1996.

Did you know?
  • Dwarf variety hops grow shorter in height than traditional varieties but, importantly, produce the same yield. This combination makes harvest easier.
Recently added hops
  • Storage: is based on the percentage of alpha acids remaining after 6 months at 20*F.
  • Oil composition percetages are based on the total percentage of oil in the hop. Example: 10 - 20% means that for the specific oil it is 10 - 20% of the overall oil make up.
